Offense finally scores, but Milwaukee loses

DENVER – The Milwaukee Brewers’ offense finally broke loose a bit but it wasn’t enough.

After tying the game in the ninth inning, the Brewers lost to the Colorado Rockies, 6-5, Friday night at Coors Field on C.J. Cron’s single with no outs in the bottom of the 10th, scoring the runner placed at second base.

The defeat was the fifth in a row for the Brewers, who fell to 6-5 in extra innings. In their previous four losses, they scored only seven runs so the offense broke out somewhat but saw potential rallies thwarted by four double-play grounders and several hard-hit balls right at defenders.

Cron’s hit came off Devin Williams, who had just come on to pitch the 10th for the Brewers. He took a 2-2 fastball on the outer half the other way to right field to score runner Ryan McMahon without a play.
